A place for people of faith and no-faith to explore shared values, build respect and mutually inspiring relationships, and pursue common action for the common good

About the Blog

About the Blog:
This blog is an internet home of conversation around the intersections of faiths at Elmhurst College.
In a world that paints religion as a negative force, we come together for the common good as people from different religious backgrounds to demonstrate that our community is better when we work together for mutual understanding and respect.

This blog may explore faith and values in a context you may not be fully comfortable with and from a perspective that may not share your beliefs and ways of life. Because of this, I must set out some guidelines so that all may feel this is a place where they can state our beliefs and work with our values. -I can only write from my perspective, guest posters can only write from their own, you can only write from yours; if you do not understand something someone is saying, please feel free to ask a constructive question.
-Everyone who sees and voices their opinion on this website has a right to do so.
-When writing, please use statements that speak for only yourself, not a group or for others (use “I” statements).
-Suspend your judgement in this conversation and take time to consider what others have said before you respond, even(especially) if you disagree.
-Respect the importance of other writers faith, philosophical, or moral tradition in his/her/zir own life.
-Don’t expect others to know everything about your own tradition- be open to answering questions.
-No question is stupid.
